Ughh Can't Decide

I've got me a sweet pair of Zeal Optics Link SPPX goggles, but I came around some extra money and I've decided to pick up a second pair of goggles, this time in a white frame.

I can't decide between the Electric EG2 and the Oakley Crowbars. I've tried them both on, and it's seriously a coinflip.

I'm gonna post a poll here, for anyone that's going to even bother to vote. I'll give it til the end of this week or so and pick the winner of this poll as my goggle of choice.

i love my life

btw, the reason i can't decide between these two is because they're the same price. i'm not looking at any special editions or crazy colors. just simple white frames.

i love my life

Now, I quite like the Crowbar in White - actually more than the White EG2. The EG2 looks too big in White

White - Crowbar
Colour - EG2

Why you want the crowbar over the splices? I was under the impression splices were the better of the 2.

Any body know whats up, differences? (sorry to thread jack/sidetrack)

Im in the same boat, looking at goggles, confused. Wanting a nice pair that will work well.

people say that crowbars fit nicer, and they look better. the splices are the higher end model, so they cost more. i guess crowbars are supposed to be a better value. the biggest reason that people like crowbars is because so many editions and colorways came out for the crowbar, and it's very VERY customizable.

you can interchange straps, frames, riggers, etc., and there's a huge cult following that sells these parts separately for relatively cheap so you can just buy parts and change up colors on your crowbars without having to buy an entire new set of goggles. riggers usually run for about 15 dollars for a set, straps anywhere from 10-30, and frames for about 20-30. the lenses are the most expensive part of crowbars.

but you guys are definitely pushing me towards the eg2s lol.

i love my life

I like my EG2s a lot, none of the Oakleys I tried on fit as well. I also just saw some Zeals on overstock.com for under $50.
